F1 racing, Sakhir GP: Desert battle part 2, excitement with new structure

Two races, two tracks, with new challenges and new faces. This weekend Sakhir GP will bring a new race at the Bahrain international racetrack with a completely new structure and the scheduled fastest lap time in F1 history.
Bahrain International Circuit is one of three venues to hold up to 2 F1 races in 2020 (besides Red Bull Ring – Austria and Silverstone Circuit – UK). But this time things are a little different. The track used for the Sakhir GP is not the usual “Grand Prix Circuit” but the “Outer Circuit”, the part of the track that surrounds the entire campus.

The “Outer Circuit” is 3,543 km long, but is still about 0.2 km longer than the shortest track on the current F1 schedule, Circuit de Monaco. And with only 11 corners, the average speed per lap will be relatively large. The riders will have to complete 87 laps (9 more than Monaco GP) with a total distance of 307,995 km.
With 3 lines but there will only be 2 DRS areas, their positions are on the starting / destination segment respectively (with the DRS pinpoint in front of crab 10 and the line between the corner of corner 3 and 4 (with the pinpoint located in front of 1), like Bahrain GP, ​​there is no DRS in the straight line before reaching the start / finish line.
Pirelli’s tire selection for the two Bahrain races is the same with C2 for Hard tires, C3 for Medium tires and C4 for Soft tires. The tires will have to face two challenges: the largest tire surface abrasion with the fastest average speed per lap.
Unlike Bahrain GP, ​​the first two test sessions every Friday and Saturday take place in the late afternoon, so the temperature at the racetrack will be more comfortable, along with the race taking place on the “new” track, the Data collection is very important.
Considering this a high speed racecourse, though, engine power will be an important factor in helping the cars gain an edge in the race.
